Football is about to return in Germany with the Bundesliga
The Bundesliga has been given the green light by the Germany government; to resume the competition in the second half of May after the stoppage caused by the coronavirus pandemic. This information follows the decision taken by the government of Chancellor Angela Merkel; and regional leaders to give the green light to the resumption of parties, behind closed doors, and under strict security and hygiene measures.”Today’s decision is good news for the Bundesliga First and Second Bundesliga.
It is a great responsibility for clubs that must comply with medical and organizational rules; said DFL Administrative Director Christian Seiffert. Seiffert admitted that games behind closed doors are not the ideal solution; but at the same time, it is the only possible one to end the season; something necessary to ensure the existence of some clubs.
The heads of the clubs and the DFB will meet this Thursday; to define the next steps until the reopening of the season. Dortmund Managing Director Hans-Joachim Watzke said his club was aware of the responsibility.
Only because people showed incredible discipline can we return step by step to another form of normality, Many sectors return to their activity under strict rules and soccer too. In this context, at Borussia Dortmund, we are aware of our responsibility.
Watzke also said that just for a team like Dortmund which receives a special force from the support of its public playing behind closed doors is not the best, but that the alternative of waiting until it was possible to play games with the public was not feasible. Most clubs started training a few weeks ago, albeit in pairs or in small groups. The test round also started among all the first and second division players, technical staff, and others involved in the matches..
